Tasting Notes

Beautifully pure, floral nose. On the palate a racy, energetic feel with nuances of stone fruit, acacia, brioche and underlying minerality. Lovely purity and vitality run like a vein through the wine, which has a long, crisp, slightly nutty finish. Exemplary Blanc de Blancs and great apéritif style.

Deliciously precise with high toned citrus fruit providing thrilling focus and definition. White flowers and crisp apple join chorus making this supremely refreshing as well as exceedingly moreish. This really speaks of the character of Cuis – the heart and soul of Gimonnet’s vineyard holdings.

Reviews & Scores

An immaculate blanc de blancs (100% chardonnay) champagne, arrow-like in its precision and focus, with an invigorating sourness and gentle touch of white blossom.
Victoria Moore, The Telegraph

Delicate texture but some autolysis on the nose. Real savour and refreshment. Beginning, middle and end to this proper wine – very much more interesting than many champagnes at the same price.
17 Points, Jancis Robinson MW

Aromatic, with apple blossom and ripe fruit notes, this well-cut blanc de blancs shows a chalky underpinning, layered with flavors of glazed nectarine, toasted almond and candied ginger. Long and creamy on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 800 cases imported.

TASTING NOTES

This superb Blanc de Blancs from Gimonnet captures the true taste of this domaine in a single blend. Offering ample frut with lingering apple and pears, it has a creamy bead and fine chalk texture of mineral grip and character and possesses intense structural precision. Simply sumptuous.

TASTING NOTES

Absolutely outstanding. This low dosage cuvée captures the brilliance of 2008. Classic Gimonnet: racy, driving and mineral with real delicacy. This blossoms in the glass to reveal an underlying seriousness which will unravel with age. Spectacular today but with a big future.
